Subject Should row keys be inserted in ascending order?
Date Fri, 21 Sep 2012 00:52:24 GMT
The DataModel page in the Cassandra Wiki ( says:

"In Cassandra, each column family is stored in a separate file, and the
file is sorted in row (i.e. key) major order."

Does this mean that new row keys should be ascending? If they are not
ascending does that mean all

of the data after the new key needs to be shifted down?
